The Influential Leader

The Influential Leader

The Influential Leader program focuses on leading and influencing in the ever-changing 21st century organisational world. It is specifically designed for those who are moving into a more strategic leadership role with a larger span of responsibility and influence.

The program will help leaders reassess personal skills, emotional intelligence and impact as they take on broader accountability and challenges. This inward approach helps participants gain knowledge of themselves, how others experience them, and recognise the different drivers that motivate those around them.

The program explores contemporary leadership concepts and techniques with a focus on the relationship between influence and authority. The four-day module incorporates 360-degree, real time peer feedback and meaningful project work based on each participant’s identified organisational challenge.

The Influential Leader is delivered by expert facilitators, who are themselves leaders and influencers, with workplace coaching provided before and after the program.
